BATMFour Quick Start


You’ve received your new BATMFour and you’re eager to get started.

So, let’s get started!

1. Handling arrangements:

The BATMFour weighs approximately 145kg (320 lbs) before packaging!

The BATMFour will be shipped differently depending on your location. The BATM itself is heavy - about 145kg (320 lbs). This may require 2 or 3 people to unload it depending upon it’s area of deployment! The BATM may be crated, or wrapped in cardboard & plastic wrap.

Please plan accordingly, and recruit a few extra hands to assist in the uncrating process.

European Shipping:

The BATM will arrive standing up on a pallet, wrapped in cardboard & shrink-wrap.

Check the tilt sensors upon receipt to ensure that the machine hasn’t been tossed about.

Note any shipping damage or tilt variations on the shipping receipt.

Overseas Shipping:

The BATM will arrive in a crate about the size & shape of a coffin on a special custom pallet.

Check the tilt sensors upon receipt to ensure that the machine hasn’t been tossed about.

Note any shipping damage or tilt variations on the shipping receipt.

Typical total weight: 227kg (500 lbs)
